The Dresden Files: Birds Of A Feather (Pilot) by (Sci-Fi Channel January 21, 2007 / ) - Jim Butcher's gritty but likable urban wizard, Harry Dresden, has arrived on the SciFi Channel, and we're pleased, if not enchanted, with the result. Paul Blackthorne is terrific as Harry, the Chicago PI/Wizard, but Valerie Cruz doesn't quite fill Lt. Connie Murphy's shoes, and Terrence Mann's role as spectral adviser (a paler Giles) is channeling a bit too much Tim Curry. But we've only seen the pilot, "Birds of a Feather" and there's every chance that the characters will settle into their roles after a few more shows. It's certainly good enough to give them a season to pull it together. (see review)
